Your Creative Calendar: 77 Things To See, Hear, And Read This December

It seems almost unfair that most pop culture critics and reporters have to put together best-of-the-year lists before the year is actually over. That’s because the end stretch of the year is often disproportionately stacked with high-quality content. Eminem’s new album, which comes out on December 15, was only announced last week, for instance, and what if it turns out to be an all-timer? But even with advance screenings and album streams, it’s a mighty marathon to make it through all this year-end material, let alone properly digest it and put it in context with the other offerings of the last 11 months. In fact, the line-up of what’s to come for December looks like it could double as a best-of-the-year list itself. Have a look at Fast Company’s festive foreword to the most promising movies, shows, albums, and books coming your way this December, which is sure to keep you busy well into 2018.
